Special Election in Davenport

Iowa Secretary of State

Polls are open in west Davenport for Tuesday's special election. Residents of state House District 89 will choose a successor to democrat Jim Lykam who won a special election for the Iowa Senate last month.

Retired college teacher and counselor Monica Kurth is the democratic candidate running against republican Mike Gonzales who's a sergeant for the LeClaire Police Department. 

Polls opened at 7 am and will close at 9 pm. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
